About Eco Warrior Series with Bartlett Brands

As designers and makers, we have the power to make decisions that impact our planet's ecology. Bartlett Brands has made a planet-first pledge-committing to help our clients make the most environmentally sustainable decisions for their products and packaging. In the Eco Warrior Series, we'll explore different areas of sustainable design and learn how to make innovative design decisions that reduce impact without sacrificing aesthetics or experience.

Part II. Weds, 10/09: Recology Tour for Designers

Design more sustainably with the end in mind. We’ll separate recycling facts from myths while touring two SF Recology facilities. Learn more about choosing materials and optimizing your designs to support recycling in a commercial facility.

The tour will begin from our Environmental Learning Center located at 401 Tunnel Avenue in San Francisco and end around 12:30 pm at Recycle Central on Pier 96. For the tour, please remember the following:

  • Everyone must wear closed-toe shoes and pants. Slip-on shoes, sandals, and shorts are not allowed.
  • To tour Recycle Central you must be able to provide your own car transportation between our two facilities. Due to the location of Pier 96 taxis (Uber and Lyft included) and bikes are not allowed and there is no public transit available. If attending with a group, carpooling is appreciated and encouraged. Bus or van parking is also available.
